Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015: Schuylerville dominates Glens Falls in 'B' action

   Leading off today: An anticipated Section 2 showdown between state-ranked Class B football teams didn't live up to its billing Friday as No. 5 Schuylerville overwhelmed No. 11 Glens Falls 33-0.

   "Everyone was clicking, everyone was doing their jobs -- it was just a great example of what we can accomplish as a team," senior fullback Skyler Bateman told The Post-Star after rushing for 135 yards and a TD.

   The Black Horses piled up nearly 449 yards on the ground and 494 overall. Senior quarterback Will Griffen scored three touchdowns, and Joe Vanderhoof ran 10 times for 120 yards and picked off a pass as Schuylerville improved to 6-0.

   Schuylerville held Glens Falls to 152 total yards.

   Victor stays perfect: It was by no means easy, but No. 13 Victor improved to 6-0 with a 42-34 win over No. 28 Hilton in Class AA action outside Rochester. QB Jamie Trimboli ran 16 times for 179 rushing yards and two touchdowns in the win, and Dan Barrow contributed 153 yards and another score.

   The Blue Devils scored the first 14 points on a 30-yard run from Trimboli and his 10-yard pass to Alexander Mabbett early in the second quarter.

   Hilton trimmed the margin to 14-12 at the half, but a blocked punt and Zac Estabrooks return for a touchdown made it 21-12 a minute into the third quarter and Barrow returned a Cadets fumble for another score.

   "These games are good for us to prepare us for the competition we're going to see down the road," Trimboli told The Daily Messenger.

   M-W in top form: A fumble recovery at its own 16-yard line with 25 seconds left sealed a 24-20 victory for No. 19 Monroe-Woodbury over No. 8 Newburgh Free Academy in the Section 9 Class AA game of the year this far.

   Newburgh roared back from three scores down to take a 20-17 lead, but senior quarterback Ryan O'Malley completed a 24-yard touchdown to junior tight end Rich Martucci to start the second half and conclude the scoring. It was the second TD of the game for Martucci, who entered the game with two catches for the season.

   "(Offensive coordinator Pat D'Aliso) is always trying to (implement) the tight ends," Martucci, who also caught a 63-yard TD, told The Times Herald-Record. "But tonight their defense allowed me to get in a little bit more. The strong safety kept coming up, and they were leaving the (middle) wide open."

   Class A upset: Chris DiCesare had 206 yards on 27 carries with two touchdowns for Irondequoit (3-3) in a 25-14 win over 19th-ranked Greece Athena. A 4-yard run by Shawn Jones (seven carries, 64 yards) staked the Eagles to a 35-7 lead.

   Huge Sec. 3 efforts: Jeremy Perry rushed 31 times for 411 yards and four TDs as East Syracuse Minoa defeated Fulton 35-18 to improve to 5-1.

   Perry has rushed for 1,324 yards this season for the state's 17th-ranked Class A team.

   Meanwhile, Cicero-North Syracuse's Drew Flack ran 29 times for 319 yards and three TDs to beat Fayetteville- football site

Manlius 48-34 in Class AA. C-NS fought back from a 27-14 deficit.

   Flack, who missed two games after dislocating his left elbow and tearing ligaments in Week 1, ran for 203 second-half yards.

   Also noteworthy: Two Buffalo schools got big individual efforts on Friday.

   South Park wrapped up its third straight division crown with a 39-26 win at West Seneca East as Tyree Brown threw for 371 yards to set a school record. He was 18-for-28 with four touchdowns, adding 121 rushing yards on 12 carries for good measure.

   Bennett's 56-7 win over Wilson didn't give junior Isaiah McDuffie much time on offense, but he made the most of his six carries with TD runs of 28, 53 and 63 yards en route to 200 yards overall.

   Valley Central beat Warwick 35-10 to clinch the Section 9 Class AA Division II title. It was the programs first championship of any sort since 1968.

   "I'm a physical education teacher, and every day for 20 years I've walked into the high school and seen that banner that read 1968," said 16-year Valley Central coach Ron Introini. "One of our goals was to win a conference championship, and I'm so happy for our kids."

   Joe Benedict rushed for 211 yards and scored six touchdowns to lead Sandy Creek to a 40-14 victory over West Canada Valley. Benedict has 17 touchdowns through six games this season.
